Top 10 reasons to deploy Windows XP SP2

I’ve seen a fair amount of negative publicity about Windows XP SP2 recently and I don’t think it is fair!

Sure, it’s big; it introduces new functionality (which a service pack shouldn’t); and it will bring its fair share of headaches but then service packs shouldn’t just be rolled out without testing anyway! We should think of SP2 as a an operating system upgrade, plan it as if it was a new version of Windows, and reap the benefits of having a more secure operating system.

If you still need convincing as to why SP2 should be deployed, Microsoft have published an article on their website which may help you make up your mind.
